Landmarks Preservation Commission Postpones Hearing for Merchant’s House Hotel
Some heartening news just trickled down the pike regarding that proposed nine-story hotel at 27 East Fourth Street. Since any construction here would most likely affect the landmarked Merchant’s House Museum (1832) next door, the Landmarks Preservation Commission was slated to hear the case tomorrow. Not anymore.
Said meeting has been postponed for the second time in as many months, this coming on the heels of a rejection from Community Board 2. The neighborhood seems united against new development here, as the online petition to deny has nearly exceeded 2,000 signatures.
Recall also that two hotel reps have fairly recent criminal records – Edward Carroll and Constantine Fotos served time for federal crimes.
